When you set the "DataURL", if that string contains "%{searchString}",
that'll be replaced with what's been typed.
Example: if the DataURL is set to "/foo.cgi?usertyped=%{searchString}"
then the "usertyped" parameter in foo.cgi will contain whatever the user typed.

I've made a start on incorporating some of the widgets into an
extension to HTML-Widget, but have been side tracked the past couple
weeks. The code-so-far is here:

I will though have at least a couple hours this week to spend on
alien-dojo / html-dojo / html-widget-dojo goodness!
